Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled in October 2021, with a best before date of bottled date +5 years. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a pinkish tint, and a two fingered white head that had pretty good retention, and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Light funk, grape skin, red currants, gooseberry, rhubarb, damp hay, band-aid, lemon zest.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, red currant, grape skin, underripe fruit, gooseberry, green apple, lemon juice, light funk.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Red currant and muscaris grape just seems to work together, and with each sip, I seem to be liking it more and more. Crisp, dryish, and easy to drink.
